Tested today . . . Wondering if there is any hope.

  1. Today I tested for the first time. It seemed that the test was throwing illnesses and drugs that I have never even heard of at me the whole time, in fact I think they must have just invented these illnesses and drugs just in time for me to test. (HAHA)
    Anyway there were a lot of dosage questions also. I think I did okay on those. My test shut of at 85 (NCLEX-PN). I know that does not indicate a pass fail . . . I have a gut feeling that I totally bombed it. I'm trying to feel optimistic here. I really want to know . . . In this situation what are my odds knowing that I probably got more than a few wrong, but knowing i got a few right too . . . . . . . . *Pulls hair out and screams* I just wanna know!!!!! LOL

    You probably passed. If you know you got some right you're in good shape. Remember, this isn't a traditional test where you need to get x percentage correct to pass.

    Now go relax. You'll get your results in 48 hours, unless you're in California, where they seem to enjoy torturing people who just tested.

    So . . . ummm I do not fully understand how they are scored.

    I can't explain it well, but it's you get a question. Answer it wrong. Get another questions of the same difficulty level. Get it right. The next questions is a bit more difficult.

    As long as they keep getting harder and have you muttering, "What the hell??!!!" as they pop up you're in good shape.

    Well they defiantly had me muttering things . . . I had ear plugs in . . . so I hope I wasn't muttering too loud . . . Others may have thought I had turrets syndrome. I'm sure they kept a recording of me for personal entertainment if I was speaking the words that came to mind. Ok . . . so I guess thats a good sign.

    I'm cracking up! I have this image of a muttering, ear-plugged, maniacal little test-taker....

    I'm sure you did fine.

    Future RN Mandi, I will keep you in my prayers. I also took mines today but I don't feel like I passed but what am I to do but pray. At this point, it is in God's hands. So please keep me in your prayers and I will do the same for you.

    *Sighs*....wow, what a day. I took my NCLEX-RN boards today, and I am at a loss about what I think, and how I did. I only took 86 questions, and am unsure. I wasn't anxious or upset after taking the test. Pretty at-peace, actually. I didn't know all of the answers, but I tried my best. I am afraid I failed, though... I already have a job, that I have been working in as a graduate nurse until I took my boards. I will be devistated if I failed and lose my job. Arrrgh.... I wish I had some sort of indication if I passed or not.

    You are totally right. Heres a proof.

    "He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." - Matthew 17:20

    You'll be fine, im sure of that. Im still waiting for my exam and i feel the same way you do. I didnt know if i choose the correct answer and the exam was really hard. God bless to us and to all who's waiting for their results.
